Nanjing agricultural university has appointed Michael Müller as visiting professor.
The professor of Nutrition, Metabolism and Genomics was in China last week where he was ceremonially installed. He also gave students a crash course in nutrigenomics. What else the position will involve should become clear in due course, says Müller. He will certainly be teaching and there will probably be an exchange of PhD students. Any joint research will focus on the effect of nutrition on the intestines. The appointment is for a period of at least five years and is not linked directly to a research budget.
